Family Tree Packages

Your family is unique and therefore every piece of work I do is unique for you. However experience has shown that clients tend to choose from a range of different packages and services to suit their priorities, interests and budgets. These can be mixed and matched and tailored to what you want.

Before any work begins to research your family tree, I will have a free no obligation discussion with you to identify what your needs are, what you hope to find out, how the research will be carried out and to see what you know already about your family. A £100 deposit is required before any work begins with the balance paid upon completion.

People like to see where they fit in within their family tree structure and charts are a super way to communicate this easily and clearly. Choose from the Family Handprint Tree package for up to 5 generations on paternal and/or maternal line, or the Family Footprint Tree for up to 4 generations including siblings of grandparents, great grandparents, etc.

Bespoke Research

 

Individual research to enhance or supplement your family tree work already undertaken or to take forward a new dimension of research still to be uncovered.

Fees for work are £25 per hour which covers research time, report writing. Additional costs include travel (rail fare or car mileage, entry to ScotlandsPeople (£15 per day) and any entry fee or other expenses incurred to identify chargeable records. An initial non-chargeable enquiry and discussion (in person, online, telephone) will help to establish a rough estimate of likely costs and any unexpected expenses anticipated  will be highlighted before they are incurred to ensure transparency and peace of mind.

Hourly charges are made  for any unsuccessful searches but the more effective the planning the less likely that this may happen although it is often unavoidable. Family history research is not an exact science and it is possible that time may be spent on research which unfortunately yields no positive results.
